Install ICC Excel Stainless Steel Chimney 6″ Wood Stove – Flue Guru


So, we figured out where the centre of the
fireplace goes, or the wood stove, and we’re bringing up the flashing on the roof. I’ve cut a square hole for a square brace, or a square chimney bucket. And Roland is going to bring that up for me next, along with some snips, and some smaller screws, like two inch or something? Alright. Kay. To make this flashing fit in, so I went underneath here and popped the nails for the next two rows, so that there’s no nails holding up underneath that. All the way through, that’s all good and I cut that round so this fits the side in, so that just slides in, and it’s nice and straight on the bottom. It’s easy to check yourself. It fits
in here good, and we’ll seal the bottom of everything with that. See how straight that
is there, with the other course of shingles, and we have to seal under this, and nail it in the corners. So that’s low slope chimney flashing here. This is good from one to seven, there’s also steep slope chimney flashings as well, which are used on a different, when
you have a steep roof. This is a fairly low slope roof, probably a four twelve, three
twelve. So, we’ve cut the hole, and now we’ve shaped these shingles for, in the shape of that flashing. We’ve taken that bar and inserted it under those shingles, so that there’s no nails there, and we can slip this right underneath this row of shingles, so you’ve got two rows
over top, and then the other row and a half can stay under with sealant underneath. You’d want to do it just in the top row because it leaves a little bit too much the sealant to hold. I always like to slip it in with the, under two rows at least. So that’s how that should look when it’s slipped under that row of shingles. I’ll fasten it in later. I’ve got one more layer of shingles. No you wouldn’t. Yeah, I would. No, you never do, because you’d never get it up there, first of all. Okay, so here we are. We’ve got this chimney bucket in here. This is a ICC Excel chimney, or six inch chimney, and this is actual support for a cathedral ceiling, and it’s kind of flush here. The flashing fits over top. It’s screwed on each side. I built the framing out to fit it, and we’re ready to go with the roofing here. Now we’ve got the box in. We’ve got the flashing cut in, I actually cut it down one more row on the urging of my trusty assistant. So, we put the chimney starter piece on here. The claim to fame for this ICC chimney is that there’s no metal, it’s always insulation. Insulation meets insulation, so you don’t get any hot spots. There’s only those three little spots where the metal is clipped through, other than that, insulation hits insulation. So, we’ve got the first chimney section into the flue there, or into the flashing, and we’ll just plumb that up and then we can fasten the flashing down. Very good. And I’ve caulked underneath this flashing, and exposed edge with that Tremco
830, and we’re going to stick a nail into it. Got the chimney, first chimney section sitting in there, and we’ll put the next one on, and we should be good. So, we’ve got an extra length on here now, and anything over five feet above the roof has to have a brace on, so we’re sticking a roof brace on, and we’ve got the storm collar on. All these have to match, the Excels are all part of a listed group. All this, the cap has one as well. And we’re going to screw that on with the four screws after we get the roof brace on. So, it looks like a good job. Very nice, Roland. Yeah. We’ve done it nice. Very good. You’re the man. Just the roof brace to put on now, and that’s it. So we’ve got the storm collar on, siliconed around that base. Use a clear silicone for outside, it’s better for UV than white. Got the brace on, chimney cap on, roof braces are screwed back to a rafter, over there and over here, and then tightened off in the middle. They’re extendable. So you put them in loose, and then plumb up your chimney, and we screwed on the cap here as well, four places. When the chimney sweep takes these kind of caps off, he just undoes that and goes in. He doesn’t have to take that out. So, it’s all done, ready for, on
a chimney down the bottom, stove pipe and… Closed Captioning by Kris Brandhagen. [email protected]
